This training is for those who wish to develop their competence and confidence in the delivery of non 8 week mindfulness-based interventions. It is for people who do not need to complete the extensive training required to deliver MBCT/MBSR but who nevertheless wish to be equipped to use adapted mindfulness-based approaches safely and effectively.

An ever growing number of people are drawing on mindfulness in their work and using adapted mindfulness based approaches that are not the standard eight week programmes, such as MBCT or MBSR.

This training course is for people who wish to train to deliver mindfulness based interventions that are not the eight week programme. It is intended for those who don't need to complete the extensive training required to deliver MBCT/MBSR but who wish to be equipped to use adapted mindfulness based approaches safely and effectively.

Info taken from intro on course handbook

SMC has been offering a year-long Foundation training in Mindfulness-based Approaches (MBCT/MBSR) since 2011. More recently, it has become clear that an ever growing number of people are drawing on mindfulness in their work and using adapted mindfulness-based approaches that are not the standard 8 week programmes, such as MBCT or MBSR. Although this adapted mindfulness work often requires great skill, practitioners have not necessarily had much training in delivering mindfulness-based approaches. This training is for people who do not need to complete the extensive training required to deliver MBCT/MBSR but who nevertheless wish to be equipped to use adapted mindfulness-based approaches safely and effectively.

For Sussex Partnership staff, completion of this training, or equivalent, will become one of a number of requirements needed to meet governance arrangements for delivering mindfulness-based approaches.
